Ended up sleeping through the initial cook and my shanks braised for about an extra 4 hours than intended :laugh: Long story short, it was supposed to be a par cook until the next day but I had company. So... by the time company left I had a late start and fell asleep through the braising process. A little too long. :laugh:


So a rewind prior to the mishap, starting with some nice lamb shanks

Fresh rosemary, oregano and thyme

And some other goodies

Browned the shanks first

Left with all this lamb goodness

Onions, carrots and celery

Beer, wine and aromatics

This was where I was supposed to only go for about an hour and a half but fell asleep :sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep:

NEXT DAY





Luckily there was enough fat that the meat didn't burn so I salvaged this :clap2::clap2:

Not wanting it to cook anymore than it already did I sous vide-d it

So it was pretty much rinse and repeat from the night before

Cooked only with beer this time

What it was looking like :clap2::clap2:

Loaded into individual clay pots

Not the prettiest but topped with pastry dough and into the oven

About 25 minutes

Served with a tequila shot each

Salvaging a potentially failed cook is what separates the boys from the men :thumb: nicely done

Looks like what you had planned all along. Never know it was a salvaged fail. I'd take it over a chicken pot pie anytime.

Nice save, if that's what you want to call it. I think in the back of your mind that is what you had planned the entire time. Lol. Looks great, Sako. I would love a bowl of that.

Wow! That looks insanely good. All of my fails turn into mystery taco meat. I actually have a boneless leg of lamb fail project that was cooked a couple weeks ago in the freezer waiting for the taco process. I may have to switch it up after seeing your results.

Thanks Carl!

Plan was a nice, fat lamb shank over a truffle potato puree. :hungry: That one drink changed the fate of the shanks.:laugh:

Thanks guys! Def a must try. To be honest I've never made a pot pie of any kind before but now I'm hooked.
